Looks like Universal Pictures and the producers of that Fifty Shades of Grey adult film spoof have settled their legal differences out of court.

Universal and Fifty Shades Ltd., EL James' company filed a lawsuit against Smash Pictures, the makers of Fifty Shades of Grey: a XXX Adaptation.

The producers claimed 50 Shades was in the public domain, while Universal alleged a "willful attempt to capitalize on the reputation of the book."

"The first XXX Adaptation is not a parody ... it does not comment on, criticize, or ridicule the originals. It is a rip-off, plain and simple," the suit read.

According to court docs, an agreement was reached upon "payment of a confidential sum by Smash Pictures to plaintiffs and upon entry by the court."

The settlement refers to "a stipulated judgment for permanent injunction with respect to plaintiffs' claims for copyright and trademark infringement."

No further information about the settlement was released.

Basically, if you're looking for Christian Grey porn action, you'd better hope Fifty Shades of Grey is rated NC-17, because this XXX ripoff ain't happening.

The movie is slated for a summer 2014 release.
